Predictive maintenance vibration monitor detects bearing failures

June 29, 2004
Vibration monitor detects rolling element bearing failures and shaft unbalance conditions on critical plant equipment such as pumps, motors, compressors, fans and spindles. It is permanently mounted on plant equipment to continuously monitor a machine''s operating condition through vibration analysis. It has the capability to analyze a vibration signature and to predict failures in advance by sending an alarm output signal to a PLC or relay. Octavis.
